From a Washington Post obit by Matt Schudel headlined “Jim Hartz, Today show host and Channel 4 anchor, dies at 82”:

Jim Hartz, a co-host of NBC’s “Today” show for two years in the mid-1970s who also was a local news anchor in New York and Washington, died in Fairfax County, Virginia.

An old-school newscaster with a deep voice that had hints of his native Oklahoma, Mr. Hartz became one of the country’s youngest local news anchors when he joined New York’s WNBC-TV in 1964, when he was 24.
